Extracting Squid Ink: The Instructional Video. Chef Andrea Cavaliere of Cecconi's in West Hollywood, CA.
Here's an early Christmas present for you Deep End Diners. Or, if you're planning on making your own squid ink pasta for Thanksgiving, then this will be a Turkey Day tutorial.
Extracting squid or cuttlefish ink may sound bizarre and daunting, but after you've seen it performed, it's not so insurmountable.
Chef Andrea Cavaliere of the great Italian eatery Cecconi's in West Hollywood showed me step-by-step how to process a cuttlefish and get to that little precious sac of squid ink.
Enjoy the show!
